Understanding the coverages of a auto insurance policy aids in choosing which coverages you need for your vehicles. The coverage terms in a policy can be ambiguous and reading a policy is terribly boring. These are typical coverages found on most auto insurance policies.
Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist (UM/UIM) – Your UM/UIM coverage protects you and your vehicle’s occupants from other drivers when they are uninsured or don’t have enough coverage. Covered losses include injuries to you and your family as well as your vehicle’s damage.
Due to the fact that many drivers carry very low liability coverage limits, it doesn’t take a major accident to exceed their coverage limits. This is the reason having UM/UIM coverage should not be overlooked. Usually these limits are set the same as your liablity limits.
Comprehensive insurance – This coverage pays to fix your vehicle from damage from a wide range of events other than collision. You need to pay your deductible first and then insurance will cover the rest of the damage.
Comprehensive insurance covers things like a tree branch falling on your vehicle, rock chips in glass, vandalism and hitting a bird. The maximum payout a auto insurance company will pay at claim time is the ACV or actual cash value, so if it’s not worth much more than your deductible consider dropping full coverage.
Med pay and Personal Injury Protection (PIP) – Med pay and PIP coverage provide coverage for short-term medical expenses like pain medications, X-ray expenses, hospital visits and doctor visits. They can be utilized in addition to your health insurance program or if you lack health insurance entirely. It covers not only the driver but also the vehicle occupants and also covers being hit by a car walking across the street. PIP is not available in all states and may carry a deductible
Collision – This coverage will pay to fix damage to your Escalade from colliding with an object or car. You have to pay a deductible then your collision coverage will kick in.
Collision coverage protects against claims such as backing into a parked car, driving through your garage door, crashing into a ditch and sustaining damage from a pot hole. Collision coverage makes up a good portion of your premium, so you might think about dropping it from vehicles that are 8 years or older. It’s also possible to choose a higher deductible to get cheaper collision coverage.
Auto liability insurance – This will cover damage that occurs to other people or property by causing an accident. Coverage consists of three different limits, per person bodily injury, per accident bodily injury, and a property damage limit. You commonly see policy limits of 50/100/50 which stand for a limit of $50,000 per injured person, a total of $100,000 of bodily injury coverage per accident, and property damage coverage for $50,000. Occasionally you may see one number which is a combined single limit which limits claims to one amount rather than limiting it on a per person basis.
Liability coverage protects against things like pain and suffering, attorney fees, loss of income and bail bonds. The amount of liability coverage you purchase is up to you, but consider buying as large an amount as possible.
